James Endredy, who has studied with tribal shamans all over the world, offers a rigorous and authentic new philosophy of shamanic practice called ecoshamanism. Rejecting the consumer/industrial worldview and the spiritual deadness that accompanies it, ecoshamanism leads to a fundamental shift in consciousness-first, by becoming aware of the sacred natural world and our role within it, and next, by forging a spiritual alliance with the sentient forces that sustain our planet. Using the powerful ceremonies, sacred rituals, and everyday practices in this guidebook, you can transform your life as you save the world.

“In this excellent book, James Endredy makes the case for understanding sustainable living practices and ecological awareness by incorporating the age old Shamanic tradition. Ecoshamanism is at once a powerful contribution to the shamanic literature and a call to action.”
-José L. Stevens, Ph.D, author of Praying with Power: How to Use Ancient Shamanic Techniques to Gain Maximum Spiritual Benefit and Extraordinary Results Through Prayer

“James Endredy has a deep respect for the sacred traditions of indigenous cultures. His work of bringing people closer to Mother Earth is an important contribution to restoring balance between the human community and the larger web of life.”
-Casimiro dela Cruz Lopez, Huichol emissary and illustrator of The Journey of Tunuri and the Blue Deer: A Huichol Indian Story

“When will modern culture remember that the land on which we stand is holy? Thank you, James Endredy, for the humbling reminder that while many of us on the spiritual path spend thousands of dollars flying off to exotic locations to get a glimpse of 'Truth,' Divinity itself is right outside our door, waiting to reconnect with us. Read this book and begin the remembering …”
-Hillary S. Webb, author of Traveling Between the Worlds and Exploring Shamanism

Pagan, Witch, Wiccan: all of these terms are used to describe someone who follows an earth-based spiritual path. But what do they really mean? Gede Parma, author of Spirited, explains what it truly means to live life as a Pagan.

The power of the chant connects us to the ancient spiritual art of singing shamans, swamis, lamas, rabbis, ministers, and priests. However, just as many of the world’s religions have neglected to adequately promote the sacredness of the land, so the modern religions have neglected to adequately promote the sacredness of the land, so the modern versions of these faiths employ many forms of...

In the last issue I wrote about water, so this time, nearly approaching the summer solstice, I thought it was only appropriate to write about fire. Fire. Both the word and the image bring so much to mind. It scorches. It desiccates. It smolders and burns. It sparks, it inspires, it enflames, and it emboldens. Like the other elements, it has its positive side and its fierce side. And yet, though...

2012 has been cited as being "the end of the world as we know it," at least as predicted by Mayan prophecy. Just what does this mean, and why 2012? James Endredy, author of Beyond 2012, explains.

Since ecoshamanism is the antithesis  of the materialistic worldview, one of the ways that the shamanic world can start to appear in front of us is when we engage in activities completely foreign to the habitual modes of being imposed on us by modern society. The techniques of counterpractice that I have laid out so far have been some of the big ones that are aimed at deep levels of awareness....

Since there are so many different and unique types of trees, it is important when approaching one to simply start by standing back from it and noticing what it is like and what it is doing. In this way you will have a better idea as to what kind of conversation you could have with the tree and what you may be able to learn from it. For example, if you were to meet a person who is a math...

Throughout history, certain extraordinary individuals have lived, loved, or excelled so well that ordinary mortals have regarded them with awe and bewilderment. Ordinary mortals have wondered and puzzled about the shamans, healers, saints, and sages, even venerated or worshipped them, feeling that they must be more than merely human, even when the heroes themselves made no such claims. Who or what are these heroes? What does it take for ordinary mortals to become one?
One of the things that inspires me so much about the people involved in the New Age community is the undeniable sincerity and unpretentious good humor displayed by many of its members. But many of us (myself included) who openly acknowledge the ...
Walking to my apartment after work one day, I saw an older man in front of me on the sidewalk acting a bit like a tourist, stopping to look at the old homes and apartment buildings, many from the turn of the century. We said hello and he added, ...

It seems strange, doesn't it? A patron saint of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and all other sexually fluid shades in-between. Popular opinion would have us believe that, by default, a saint would be against such liberal sexuality, but then again, just because an opinion is popular doesn't mean that it's true. In my book La... read this article
